Hankblog, you’re a 10!

And not just in the Bo Derek kind of way. 10

Hankblog was included on the Walker’s blog, Off Center in their 2006 10 Top Tens! Here’s what Tyler Green of Modern Art Notes said about us:

In 2006 many arts institutions started art blogs as a way to communicate with their communities. The best of the new bunch is Hankblog, the Henry Art Gallery’s (get it?) blog which doesn’t just look inward, but smartly places the Henry in a national context.

Check out Tyler’s whole list, and update your bookmarks – it’s a great selection of art blogs. From photographer Alex Soth’s great blog, to the collaborative blog of the Pulitzer Foundation and the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis to our neighbor PORT – it’s a fantastic list!

We’ll accept this compliment as a challenge to make Hankblog much better in 2007. My small Hankblog resolutions for the new year include:

Guest blogger posts from more exhibiting artists, local artists, and curators.

More video and audio posts from Henry exhibitions, programs, and events

A technical move from the WordPress site to a WordPress-powered site within the Henry’s website.

The Henry also features largely in Regina Hackett’s Best of 2006 for the PI. Yeah!
